Citizens today are looking for a deeper and more meaningful engagement
with their local governments. Traditional ways of interacting with
government—writing letters, mails, calling hotlines and physically visiting
offices are frustrating for citizens.
This impatience is a by-product of the
profound transformation in their interactions with businesses, family and
friends. Emergence of smartphones and ubiquitous availability of Internet
access has made digital interactions on demand and customized.
On the other hand, most government agencies are struggling to do more for
citizens with limited funds and resources. Working with legacy softwares and
traditional processes, public agencies do not have enough public data to
deliver exactly what the citizens want and hence are often involved in
rollbacks and iterations as a measure of improvement.
The idea of placing the citizen at the centre of governance and helping public
agencies to improve efficiency, performance and saving cost were the main
reason that we started this company. Taking this as a challenge to
revolutionize government-citizen engagement and bring technology in public
sector, CivilCops was started by a small team of believers, data geeks and
developers in New Delhi, India on 5th September 2017.
We believe that in order to make smart cities, we need a complex ecosystem
of public leaders, citizens, communities and technology. Our CivilCops
platform acts as a catalyst to empower all the stakeholders involved, thus
helping in building smarter, safer and more livable cities.
Using our AI-driven platform, cities can better understand the needs
and wants of their citizens. Our citizen interaction channels help local
government agencies to collect and analyze hundreds of public data
points to plan more efficiently, dedicate resources more strategically,
personalize public services and build and engage with communities.
Our mission is to work with smart cities, municipalities and local
governments to improve communication, efficiency and citizen trust
by minimising the data and knowledge gap.
